Come to the Waukesha area for our first convention since 2019. Meet old friends and new ones while birding wonderful Waukesha. The 22,000-acre Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest and the 10 parks that are part of the 8,500-acre county park system fill with birds in May. And of course, your birding friends from all around the state will be there too.
